Pupils from Rackheath Primary School have helped launch a month of litter picks as part of The Great British Spring Clean.
Broadland District Council is backing the national campaign, which aims to get half a million people clearing up their local communities.
Throughout this month, the local authority will be lending out litter picking equipment and arranging collections of rubbish picked up by schools and community groups.
Yesterday, council officials teamed up with year five pupils and their teachers at Rackheath primary to pick litter in the woods adjacent to the school.
Chris Ashman, headteacher, said: 'By doing the litter picks, we are helping the children to think about the environment and about how litter can spoil our surroundings.'
